Through the use of porcelain and glass, Frances Wright explores the fragility of mind, particularly the ephemeral quality of memory. Prior to her making, she selects and stores plants, preserving their essence in porcelain slip. By interrupting the plants’ life cycle, her work acknowledges fear of loss and a sense of vulnerability. Her interest in glass lies mainly with its reflective, translucent qualities and is also used to encapsulate and fossilize plants.
Her hand thrown porcelain dishes are glazed with wood ash glazes, creating natural greens and blue hues.
